How about this?
e2fsprogs's ``Essential: yes`` does not change for some ext2,ext3 user. and add ``Recommends: e2fsprogs`` at e2fsprogs.(for begginer)
and then /sbin/mkfs move from e2fsprogs to util-linux.
and initscripts has ``Depends: ... e2fsprogs|xfsprogs|jfsutils|reiserfsprogs``.
How about this? I want to see your advice about this.
